Best butterfly enclosure I have seen. Tropical plants, birds and other animals add to the experience. Great indoor activity on a cold winter day. We enjoyed it a lot. It does not take long to see everything in the exhibit but we spent a lot...More

Loved this spot since our kids were barely able to walk. It's calm, interesting and local. We recommend the season's passes if you would like to go more than once a year.

It's a small place so paying just under $30 for 2 kids and an adult is a bit steep for an hour's worth of entertainment. BUT if you really like nature with free-flying butterflies hovering above, flamingo and turtles in the pond and perhaps a...More
